With all the advancements in medical aesthetics and more anti-aging options readily available, 40 is the new 30! Learn about the most popular treatments that are helping women in their 40s look younger than we did in our throwback snaps.
Injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers are the #1 most requested procedure for women in their 40s. Botox freezes muscle movement to reduce forehead lines and crow’s feet, while fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, and RHA restore lost volume and youthful plumpness. These procedures can produce amazing and effective results in virtually no time at all, with the ability to resume daily life right away.
Especially as women hit their 40s, skin tightening treatments can make up for skin sagging that begins with age-related collagen loss. Laser treatments such as Halo and Sciton are popular options for skin tightening, especially in the face and neck. Different laser treatments can be combined or used in different ways to achieve desired results!
There are many popular surgeries and procedures to reduce the signs of aging in and around the eyes, such as eyelid surgery or microneedling under the eyes, which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and under-eye bags.
With quick results and minimal downtime, more patients are getting facelifts earlier in life, as opposed to waiting till their 60s and 70s. The 40-year-old face can still benefit from minor lifting, whether it’s a surgical or a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift uses a combination of injectables, such as Botox and dermal fillers, customized to reduce signs of sagging and wrinkles, and strategically adds volume to enhance existing features. This versatile treatment not only softens wrinkles and lines, but also reduces hollow, sunken-in under-eyes, smooths the forehead, plumps up the lips, gives eyebrows a subtle lift, diminishes nasolabial folds, fills in cheeks and other areas with lost volume, defines the jawline, and contours the face.
With the rise of the Zoom Boom, more patients are opting for body contouring procedures. Patients want procedures that provide impressive results, keeping them looking young with minimal downtime. These types of treatments can help spot-treat small, stubborn pockets of fat that are hard to reduce, even with regular diet and exercise.
